OSCP Annual Conference January 2021 -The Key Principles of Children's Rights
“The pandemic has had a profound impact on all of us. However, the repercussions for children have extended into every single aspect of their lives, from their education, to their homes, their mental health, and much more. Every child matters; we want to see all our children thrive, develop and reach their potential; every child has rights, even during a pandemic.”
CEO, Equality and Human Rights Commission, 2020
This year our annual conference took place online and focused on one of the partnership’s identified priorities - Childrens’ Rights. It offered us an opportunity to reflect on our own practice and that of our organisations during this period of unprecedented challenge.
We were delighted to welcome Professor Laura Lundy as our keynote speaker. Professor Lundy is Co-Director of the Centre for Children’s Rights and a Professor in the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work at Queen’s University, Belfast. She is also co-Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Children’s Rights. .
We were also joined by colleagues from a range of organisations working in Cornwall sharing examples of how they have promoted the rights of children in their work with children and families locally.
